The Doggy Bakery made the treats for last week’s charity event
A Bromley bakery catering exclusively to dogs has received ap-paws from on high after its treats were sent to Westminster last week.
The Doggy Bakery, based in Springfield Road, cooked up two cakes and donated them to Macmillan for its coffee morning event on Friday, September 29.
Owner David Groves thought the treats were only being used for a photoshoot outside Parliament, but he soon discovered chancellor of the exchequer Phillip Hammond’s beloved dogs Rex and Oscar had tucked in.
Mr Groves said: “We all know someone affected by cancer and we were keen to do something for this great charity and support this event.
“When they told us that our doggy cakes had been sent up to the Houses of Parliament and the chancellor’s dogs were enjoying our contribution, we were delighted.
“We just hope the dogs got as much as we did from being in this and are delighted we could help promote this incredible event.”
Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning managed to raise £29.5million in 2016 as volunteers up and down the country sold hot drinks and cakes to support the charity.
